From 20th May to 24th May, Tackle Africa organized a mental health program for HIV/SRHR where different fottball coaches were engaged through football drills and training in a way of enhancing mental health wellness awareness and knowledge and how to pas the same knowledge to the people living with HIV/AIDS. Our Executive director was privileged to be part of the training where he participated as football coach. During this training, different teams/groups were using different drills given different instructions and tasks in regards to mental health challenges, opportunities and track practices. Different manuals were given to the partcipants in regards to mental health and HIV/SRHR. Trained coaches were supposed to travel different districts passing on the mental health messages through football coaching, but unfortunately they were interrupted by the second lockdown in Uganda.
